What a great experience - my first Pecha Kucha talk.

Pecha Kutcha2

9 Inspiring and interesting speakers ranging from a landscape designer, illustrator, oil rig worker/exhibitions organiser, fuel refinery worker/photographer, student, lecturer, museum curator, and artist.

Thank you so much to all that attended and for Puke Ariki for organising and hosting.

Parallel talks were also held in Australia - Brisbane and the U.S.A.

Pecha Kucha - (Japanese: chit-chat) is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called Pecha Kucha Nights.
